    Episode Notes

    I would bet good money that most of you have not read 1978's The UFO Guidebook by Briazack and Mennick. It's one of the hidden gems of UFO literature, boasting a very even-handed array of definitions and summaries in an encyclopedia style.


    But that's not the biggest reason I love it. Thanks for listening, and keep your eyes out for befaps, my fellow

    Who are the Controllers?

    Who are the Controllers?

    Episode Notes

    In this episode, we're looking at "The Controllers"--an essay/white paper written by Martin Cannon in the early 90s. It concerns the possible connections between government mind control experimentation and the alien abduction phenomenon. I've linked to lots of stuff below, so be sure to check it out if this is a strand of the--broadly construed--"alien" "encounter" mystery that you find interesting.


    Me, I find it terrifying.

    Bonus Encounter 13: 2019 in Review, in Review

    Episode Notes

    Rather than give you a run down of the top UFO stories of 2019, I thought I'd take a look at what other people were saying were the top UFO stories of the year and rendering judgement on their choices.


    Just a few minutes of fun and a bit of information to ease you into the New Year. The next full length episode drops on January 8!

    The Saucer Life Holiday Special

    The Saucer Life Holiday Special

    Episode Notes

    This went through numerous title choices before settling on this, simultaneously an apt description and an homage to another "Holiday Special" that had nothing to do with any particular real holiday. We've got fan fiction, we've got classic saucer poetry, we've got all three of our regular guest voices--Sasha, Roberta, and Nelson--along for the ride, we've got something a bit light and fun (hopefully) before coming back in the New Year.


    Well, the poem "Experiments" is any thing but fun. Depending on how you define "fun."


    Enjoy whatever holidays you're celebrating, if any, and thanks for being with us throughout 2019.


    *NOTE: There was supposed to be a clip of Bea Arthur from a certain sci fi franchise's Holiday Special in here, but the Cheeso Media legal team advised against it!*

    The Secret Grudges of Bill English

    The Secret Grudges of Bill English

    Episode Notes

    William S. "Bill" English is, maybe, the forgotten "Bill" of 80s and 90s UFOlogy. his claims were extraordinary. His story was exciting and entertaining. Featuring clips from some classic UFO radio programming, and from the infamous 1989 MUFON conference, this was a fun episode to put together and we think it's a bit of a sleeper.


    Special thanks to some folks who pointed us in some directions and provided some background: Adam Gorightly, Jack Brewer of the UFO Trail, and one of our behind-the-scenes heroes, Jack Shepherd.


    Reading and resources


    Revelations: Alien Contact and Human Deception at Amazon


    THE GRUDGE/BLUE BOOK INCIDENT by William S. English


    John Lear's summary of English's claims (via archive.org)


    "10 UFO Stories from the Vietnam War Era" at Mysterious Universe, which recounts English's "B-52" recovery story with no indication of English's other experiences in the UFO realm.


    Curt Collins's interview with English, which is mostly about the Cash-Landrum case, but also refers to the Grudge/BB 13 material


    More info on the people and events discussed in this episode can be found in our episodes on the early internet UFO scene, OH Krill, and Bill Cooper.

Educational

I am listening to every episode, with the hopes that I’ll have a PhD in UFO History at the end.

Transitor radio filter is a mistake.

This is a 5 star podcast that is ruined by a silly gimmick. Please. Please. Stop using the transistor radio filter when reading quotations. It’s an annoying and jarring effect that removes all bass from your voice and makes the quotes difficult to listen to. Your material is well-researched and fascinating and doesn’t benefit from audio gimmicks that only serve to obscure the information.
